from paolo in Italy a French band ‘City Kids’
As you would expect there’s not a lot of information of a French band on English ‘goggle search’. What I can tell you is that Rob Younger of ‘Radio Birdman’ fame produced this album. Rob was also ‘house producer’ at ‘Citadel Records’. Amongst the many great bands he has produced is ‘Died Pretty’. For me that alone warrants a listen…. so what do they sound like?
So if I’m going to give an opinion I need to compare their sound with Australian music. Well there are definitely not ‘Birdman’ or ‘Died Pretty’ closer to ‘The Party Boys’ or ‘The Angels”. In Australia the average punter would put them under a ‘westie pub band’. Now I’m sure you’re more confused than ever!!!! In Australian terms a ‘down the road rock and roll band’. Have a listen make up your own mind.
ie. ‘punter’ means a ‘customer’ in Australian slang
‘westie’ means ‘Someone from Sydney's or Brisbane’s Western Suburbs’.
Again cheers to Paolo.
